YahooMail-Thumb

You get in, you check your email, and you get out. That's the plan anyway, and Yahoo doesn't like it. That time spent using other apps is valuable time that could be spent using its own. To tackle this issue head-on, the company has updated its Yahoo Mail app with the goodies (read: distractions) from the Yahoo homepage that people know and love. Now instead of just the mail, users will have access to the latest current events, weather reports, sports scores, popular videos, and other non-mail related attractions.

DoubleTwist fans, we have some good news and some bad news. Since it's Friday and you're probably in a pretty good mood, let's start with the bad: as of today's update, DoubleTwist can no longer import pinned Play Music tracks. Why? Because Google put the hammer down. You knew it was only a matter of time, right? Yeah, you did.

With that bit of grimness out of the way, this update also brings a couple of improvements, like the ability to stream to Qualcomm AllPlay Wi-Fi speakers.

Titanfall-Thumb

Microsoft put a good deal of focus on Titanfall when it pushed out the Xbox One, and it remains the most high-profile title for the console. The action-packed first person shooter shakes up the traditional deathmatch formula by adding mechs that players are free to hop in and out of. As a result, the game introduces more of a vertical component to the firefight, as combatants are able to hop along walls and wage war across various floors.

After numerous reports that the Swype app was making OCD-level location requests on some users' devices, the company updated the popular 3rd party keyboard to, well, not do that. At least one user claimed the app requested his location nearly 4000 times in a single day, which obviously has some rather unfortunate implications for battery life.

While some users have tried to turn this into a privacy issue (come on guys, it's a keyboard app), more than anything it just seems like a potentially battery-killing bug that needed squashing.

With today's three new Google Glass apps, you can plan a trip, book a table, and check in all along the way: Foursquare, TripIt, and OpenTable have all released official Glassware.

Foursquare, of course, allows you to check in on Google Glass, handy for a social service that really is all about doing one, simple task. TripIt will provide you travel alerts for your plans, and OpenTable allows you to make a reservation using voice commands.

Postmates-Thumb

Some places offer delivery and some don't. This is the way things are, sure, but that doesn't make life any easier for the busier (or lazier) among us. There's an itch to be scratched here, and Postmates steps in to handle it. The service turns any restaurant or grocery store into one that's able to deliver to your door. It does this by paying people to read your shopping list, pick everything up, and bring it to you.

Loosely speaking, Foursquare has always been a sort of social network, but the company is looking to get a lot more social with their new app. Instead of focusing on the relationship between businesses and customers, Swarm is all about you and your friends. Everything contained within is focused on getting groups together.... though if you did so at a local bar or cafe, Foursquare probably wouldn't mind.

There are three components to Swarm: a Facebook/Twitter-style news feed, a standard messaging system, and a social map.

SwiftKey-Thumb

The SwiftKey developers are getting ready to introduce a version of their popular third-party keyboard with Japanese input support. Prominent features should transition over just fine, with the keyboard still able to make personalized predictions and suggest emoji that it thinks may be appropriate. It will be able to switch back and forth between Japanese and English, making it useful for native Japanese speakers and friends of Japanese speakers alike.

SwiftKey

The app is currently in beta, but it's open for anyone to download and try.

dropcam

Last month, Dropcam updated its app with a slew of new features and a more unified interface. Building on that update, the company has now released version 3.0, which brings a handful of unique features to the Android app.

New Activity Feed Add Activity Labels Customize Activity Info and Alerts

In a nutshell, the app now has an "Activity Feed" that allows Cloud subscribers to filter videos by specific activities, completely customizable activity categories and alerts, and the ability to set the camera up directly from a mobile device.
